Additional details:

Not ready for that just yet? Thursday beginners have routes of 8, 9, 13, or 15 miles available, all starting from Center Point Church on the NW corner of FR 219 & 186. The church is on the return leg of the longer route. By starting here and looping around, riders avoid the long climb behind Highland Springs.

Like the Wednesday night beginner rides, you can start out small and keep increasing the length over the season. These four differ primarily in length, with a few grades of 6 % but most in the 3-4 % range.
